It will be up to Republican Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) to call a special election to fill the Ohio congressional seat being vacated by House Speaker John Boehner (BAY’-nur).
“Unfortunately, his attempts fell on deaf ears because from Day One, his speakership has been hobbled by a deeply divided Republican Party and an extremist group of tea party members who are determined to prevent the government from operating”, Ryan said.
U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan of Howland, D-13th, said that while he had disagreements with Boehner, he respected him for trying “to bring compromise and unity” to Congress. African-Americans have so turned against Republicans that Kasich acknowledged “a lot of Republicans feel as though they don’t have an opportunity to get the minority vote”.
“We want to perform well there but we also have a very strong focus on New Hampshire”, said Weaver, who helped devised McCain’s strategy in 2000. Kasich asked on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday. I know how to deal with entitlements.
“The people who keep saying that they want things to happen, what have they accomplished?”
Kasich, a two-term governor and former congressman, plans stops in Charleston and Hilton Head on Friday.
Kasich says such help also will be available for workers affected if local fears come true and funding changes slow down the separate uranium plant cleanup project in Piketon that employs hundreds of people.
The NBC/WSJ poll was conducted September 20-24 of 256 Democratic voters (which has a margin of error of plus-minus 6.1 percentage points) and 230 GOP primary voters (plus-minus 6.5 percentage points).
